Ha, again a summer post! I’m being back in Berlin for a few days and the city is filled with tourists from all kinds of different countries. Everything feels like holidays. However, not everyone has the time and/or money to spend their free days abroad or at least somewhere else away from home. But honestly – is that a reason to not getting into a summer holiday mood at all?! I don’t think so! Here comes my list of ideas on how to spend a perfect summer in the city (…or village).
A picnic in the park.
Long BBQs with friends.
Go into the zoo (…and take some kids with you. Their enthusiasm is totally infecting!).
Again: Open-air cinema on a warm summer night!
Spending a day on a lake.
A bike-trip into the urban hinterland.
On rainy days: Go to a museum!
A Cooking Party with a bunch of friends.
Gardening (and it doesn’t matter if you only have a few herbs on your window sill or a whole garden). Simply relaxing!
Go to a yoga class! Or go running. Or play beach volleyball with friends. Or just keep on moving.
Go to a concert.
Spend a whole day at your favorite coffee bar with a good book!
Buy a bunch of glossy magazines (or my secret favorites: comic books), search a nice green spot of lawn, lay down on a blanket and reeeelax!
Go to the farmers market, buy fresh fruits and prepare jam (and you will have summery memories even on a winter breakfast).
Bake a cake.
Get up early and take a swim in an outdoor pool.
Write postcards to your friends and family. It’s always nice to find something in your mail box. Even if it’s coming from your next door 🙂
Collect wild flowers from the wayside / field edges / a river bank.
…. Have a nice start into the next summery week everyone!
